Get Involved

At St Paul’s Cathedral, we are committed to extending our ministry beyond our regular congregations and towards those who need it most.

Migrants and refugees, children and senior citizens are just some of those we seek to reach and assist through our group programs, fundraising initiatives and social activism.

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 Restrictions many of our programs and activities are either suspended or meeting online. Please email welcome@stpaulscathedral.org.au for further information about our programs. We hope to resume them when we are able to, please keep following our website or social media for updates.

Bible Study

Bible studies are a great way to learn about the Christian faith, to grow and live as a Christian, and to share our faith.

Our weekly Bible Study Group meets after the Sunday 10.00am Sung Eucharist. Studies also occasionally meet via Zoom at different times. If you are interested to join the study via Zoom, please get in touch with Canon Jane Window: jwindow@stpaulscathedral.org.au.

All are welcome to join the studies, no prior knowledge is required. If you own a Bible we encourage you to bring that with you – other materials are provided below and in hard copy on the day.

Current Study: The Book of Ruth (Advent 2021)

A new Bible Study series on the Book of Ruth commences on November 28 2021. Through the narrative of Ruth, we will look at how God moves towards achieving his plan of redemption and blessing within the big picture of preparing for the birth and life of Jesus, ushering in the coming of his kingdom and the fulfillment of the restoration of his people, always progressing towards the final step of renewal of all things as our creation-tide series has focussed on.

Reconciliation

Wominjeka – Welcome

St Paul’s Cathedral stands on the traditional lands of the Kulin nation. We acknowledge and pay our respects to their elders past and present, and to all Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders.

We are committed to the work of reconciliation.

Science Week at the Cathedral

Each August, St Paul’s Cathedral engages with National Science Week and runs several activities that explore the chosen theme from the perspective of the science-religion interface.

In an increasingly global and secular scientific culture, saturated with technology and the market, the science-faith conversation is at the cutting edge of Christian engagement. Our purpose is to help equip Christians for that engagement.

Let’s Fully Welcome Refugees

As Cathedrals and Dioceses across Australia joined St Paul’s Cathedral’s 2014 awareness campaign to fully welcome refugees, the Dean wrote:

Twice a week, young people from overseas come to St Paul’s Cathedral Melbourne for a few hours’ English conversation, followed by a shared meal. All of them are new arrivals to Australia. Many of them are refugees. Volunteers from churches across the city teach them English, and help them make sense of their experiences in Australia. Just as important as making them welcome in their new setting, though, is providing a listening ear to their stories.
